McGrady placed on the injured list

Orlando, FL (Sports Network) – The Orlando Magic placed Tracy McGrady on the
injured list Wednesday due to patella tendinitis in his left knee.

The All-Star guard, who has missed the last two games with soreness in his
knee, is the NBA’s leading scorer at 28.0 points per game. He also leads the
Magic in assists (5.5), steals (1.39) and minutes (39.9) per game.

McGrady had previously missed two games more than a week ago while attending
the funeral for his great grandmother. He scored 18 points in a March 24
setback to Miami, but then missed two more games, both Orlando losses.

The Magic, who have lost eight straight and 10 of their last 11 games, are an
NBA-worst 19-56 this season.
